Rob Lorei about about 5 years ago

* FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE **

WMNF Community Radio wmnf.org brings back the nationally acclaimed documentary OUTRAGE by popular demand! After its sell out Tampa premier, WMNF proudly honors its listeners' requests by presenting two screenings of OUTRAGE at the studio@620 on Wednesday, August 12th at 7 P.M. and 9 P.M. The studio@620 is located at 620 First Ave. S., St. Petersburg. Tickets are $8 adv., $10 at door, and will benefit WMNF. Tickets and more information can be obtained at 813-238-8001 or wmnf.org.

Academy Award nominated filmmaker Kirby Dick (This Film Is Not Yet Rated) delivers a searing indictment of the hypocrisy of closeted politicians who actively campaign against the LGBT community they covertly belong to. OUTRAGE boldly reveals the hidden lives of some of our nation’s most powerful policymakers, details the harm they've inflicted on millions of Americans, and examines the media's complicity in keeping their secret.

disagree with this

I guess this is as good a place as any to criticize the practice of outing. I understand the desire of some of the more militant gays to "out" those they deem as hypocrites. But really, being "out" should result from a personal decision, not a political smear. Just because one side practices slimy politics doesn't mean everyone should.

Reply to bub

Points well taken, bub. After seeing this film I can say its not about outing gays that that others see as hypocrites (although its hard to see them as otherwise) its about exposing powerful elected officials who conceal their active sexual orientation while actively suppressing the rights of out gays. And, the media's unwritten rule to help them keep their not so secret "secret." Why would they do that? Think light skinned African Americans who "passed" and upheld Jim Crow laws, or German Jews who denied their heritage and supported Nazism. In an era when an openly gay man can be elected in Tampa, shouldn't we move beyond such deception and pandering? OUTRAGE is an excellent expose to help you decide.

Fair Game

This is an effort to stop hypocrisy. I see no more problem with outing a homosexual politician voting anti-gay, than outing a "pro-family" heterosexual politician who is having an affair. This is especially true because their anti-gay policies are harmful to people "just like them".

Waisting your time

I wish Bub could explain his investment in the "practice of outing". I mean really! Why would someone waist their time in writing such crap. I'm sure you haven't seen the movie and are way to greedy to give WMNF $10, however will use this space to inform us on "the practice of outing". For Godsakes what has this world come to?
